PHYS-104 - Introduction to Physics 2
|PHYS-104||Introduction to Physics 2||3 - credits||$318.06|
This course builds on PHYS 103. Electric and magnetic fields are used as examples of vector fields, and the concept of flux and Gauss's theorem are used to calculate the electric field in simple cases. Line integrals and the gradient are introduced as a means of going between electric field and potentials. Students are taught the uses for resistors, capacitors, and inductors and how to do calculations for circuits which use them. Ideas from relativity and quantum mechanics are introduced.
Prerequisites: PHYS 103; MATH 104 is a required course, either taken prior or concurrently.
Delivery Method: On-Campus
Lab Required: Yes - please note courses with labs are charged an additional fee of $24.34 per course credit.
Credits: 3 | Length: 90 hours | Course Outline for PHYS-104
